5 Planning Tips for First Time Solo Travelers

Going solo on your next trip, especially if it’s for the first time, can seem daunting. But there are plenty of ways to make sure your trip is safe, fun and exciting:

Read guide books

One of the perks of traveling alone is that you get to hit all the tourist spots you want without someone telling you it’s lame, out of the way or not worth it. If you want to go, go. Guide books for women are going to be your new best friend. Read up on these books and get to know insider tips to finding the best deals, where to stay, where to grab a baguette and more.

Pack right

This is another reason to scour through those Guide books for women. You get to know if there are clothing restrictions to watch out for. Do you need to cover your knees, shoulders or arms? By combing through that trusty guide book, you’ll know what to expect so you can pack the right clothes to wear.

Leave the jewelry at home

If you’re going to travel to parts of the world where your daily budget is bigger than the per income capita in the country, then it’s best not to flash around your cash. Don’t make yourself a target. Leave your jewelry at home so you won’t attract any undue attention.

Check in with your loved ones

Regularly check in with friends and family. Send them a copy of your itinerary so they know where you are.

Be vigilant

You’re on your own so it’s best to be on your guard. It means being watchful of your surroundings. If something doesn’t feel right, then don’t do it, says Smarter Travel. Don’t be complacent about your safety. That’s going to help you stay safe while you have fun on the road.
